The construction of the Minas de Huascachaca Wind Farm (PEMH), which is located in the province of Loja, canton Saraguro, parish San Sebastián Yuluc, is an advance of 49%.
The company Electro Generadora del Austro (Elecaustro) is in charge of this work. Its manager, Antonio Borrero, last weekend completed a technical visit to this project, which will have 50 Megawatts (MW).
According to Borrero, this construction is carried out with financing from the State Bank (BDE) for $ 54,000,000 plus Elecaustro’s own resources.
This intervention includes three road platforms in Yuluc, one elevation substation in Uchucay from 34.5 to 138 kV and 15 wind turbines with a unit power of the order of 3.3 MW.
A first phase included the improvement, expansion and rectification of the access roads, from the intersection of the Girón-Pasaje road to the community of Uchucay, 6.16 kilometers (km) long.
This Sunday the 34.5 / 138 kV Siemens 40/50 MVA transformer was placed at its final destination, one of the most important pieces of equipment for this electricity generation unit.
